Some of the higher ranking police and doctors said things about the Ripper and made quite accurate guesses, which suggest they had a surprisingly good insight into serial sexual murderers for that day and age.

Even in those cases he might have been able to come and go as he pleased, if 29 Hanbury Street is anything to go by - front and back doors unlocked and open all night. There were also various courtyards (like Miller's) where he might have had a room of his own, with nobody posted to supervise egress and ingress.

If he was a visitor to the district all the above was/were not relevant.

Default James Hardiman

James Hardiman born in Mile End, Whitechapel, Dec 1859 making him 29 years of age in 1888.

Lived at 13 Heneage Street which is in the hot zone (Martha Tabram inclusive geoprofile) at the time of the crimes.

James Hardiman was a cat meat salesman (horse flesh bits on a skewer) and purveyor of horseflesh.

13 Heneage Street was near 29 Hanbury, where James had once lived. His mother, Harriett Hardiman, actually lived at 29 Hanbury street, on the ground floor, and was sleeping there the night Chapman was murdered in the garden. She appeared at the inquest.

James Hardiman's daughter Harriett, had died on 18 June 1888, from emaciation arising from nerve damage, caused by untreated congenital syphilis contracted from her mother, who died on 15 Sep 1888.

James Hardiman died on 22 Dec 1891 from tuberculosis.

A series starting with Tabram is less than two months after his daughter Harriett died.

In the days before Chapman's murder, his wife, Sarah, was dying. In the days after she died, Stride and Eddowes were murdered.

His death was 10 months after the murder of Francis Coles.

Being a horseflesh purveyor he may also have had connections to Barber's horse slaughterer's yard near where Nichols was found murdered.

You would have to explain that in light of the Goulston St., apron drop. A visitor would still have to have a place to stay.

Bingo. If mary kelly could afford her own place like that than im sure the ripper, who was more than likely gamefully employed, could and did have his own place, however humble. As abberline said, it was unlikely they would find the ripper in a dossers kitchen.

Very interesting batman.
I put this type candidate in the same boat as the jacob levy.

That same boat being imtriguing not really a serious suspect. But the type that we very well could be looking for.
